2011 – Turning Our Backs on the Gods of the Copybook Headings

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Rudyard Kipling:

AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Welcome to 2012… Buckle up because it will be one hell of a ride as Obama goes for broke and his mask comes off, displaying the full intent of his Marxist agenda. Interesting times indeed.

2011 was a year replete with Progressivism running wild in America and across the globe. A year that freedom slipped away and tyrants gathered collectively in gleeful anticipation of a coalescence of power, wealth and control. The year that many patriots woke up in America and realized they did not recognize their country any more.

Economics

AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

The Keynesian economists blather on and on… Every channel you turn to, they proclaim that we are in a recovery, albeit slow, but, recovery nonetheless. And they actually think we are stupid enough to believe that. Elitist arrogance run amok.

Silly Marxists, we know the markets are rigged. All they do is go up and Americans know it is a lie. Gold and silver markets are being manipulated. Stocks are a bad joke. The dollar is junk. While firms such as IMF Global rip investors off, publicly and brutally, individual banks are stealing their clientele blind a few dollars at a time. Why? Because they can. The collective mentality dictates that you should steal all you can before the ship goes down for the last time. After all, what does it matter? Get it while you can, is their reasoning. Screw everyone, time to look out for numero uno. What they forget is that their actions will have a cost, just like it did in the days before the Russian empire came tumbling down and the KGB changed their clothes from chic jack booted thuggery, to sleek government de regeur.

We are trillions in debt here in the US. Forget untenable, it’s un-survivable. But our leaders keep printing money in a Weimar frenzy, declaring: “What inflation?” While Americans go to the store and weigh what they can afford to eat this week as opposed to keeping the heat on.

Regulations are strangling capitalism to death and company after company is down-sizing or folding altogether. Three years into Obama’s bleak utopia and unemployment is staggering. Don’t believe the government’s numbers – they are a lie as well. Rigged to make gullible taxpayers believe things are better than they really are. Thy story is entitled Animal Farm. How very anti-laissez-faire. Welcome to 1932 redux.

I sense Cass Sunstein chuckling sardonically behind the Marxist curtain of the EPA and other agencies stealing our land, telling us what we can and can’t buy and where we can and can’t live. Herding us into cities where we can be stacked and packed and controlled. They are engineering tenement Hell.

Government

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

Regulating us to death, or at the very least to our knees. It’s the Progressive agenda at its heart. And I would add ‘and soul,’ but these wankers don’t have one that we are aware of.

In 2011, we saw more and more czars rise from the Obama regime and a tidal wave of corruption completely engulf the American system of checks and balances. Not only did they get away with it, these evil politicians thumbed their noses at us and stepped on the gas, not believing for a bloody second they would ever be held accountable. And the ones that didn’t go full-frontal evil, compromised and played along to get along, justifying it as the only way to get anything done. Not realizing they had just as surely sold their souls to the devil as Judas did for his 30 pieces of silver. Scandals such as Fast and Furious and Solyndra rule the day with only crickets for accompaniment.

The Constitution was deemed an old, dusty out-dated piece of paper. It is being nullified and stripped of all meaning and being replaced with a new and improved Communist manifesto, put forth by Obama and his Progressive court. Our governing principles currently more closely resemble the Russian Constitution than our own.

Our free speech on the Internet is being threatened and taken away in brazen leaps. Our second amendment rights are being manipulated and threatened not only by the DOJ, but the DHS and every other government hack that gets half a chance. State’s rights are being stripped in the name of the federal government knowing what is in the best interest of each state and its citizens. A police state and an American killing field has just been approved by our political leaders – now if you are even accused of a crime, you can just disappear for good. No due process, no Constitutional rights… Most Americans are incredulous over this threat to individual freedoms – it is straight out of the gestapo playbook.

As the government clamps down more and more, from the TSA moving into not just airports, but bus and train terminals, to DHS profiling each of us, we find that the freest nation in the world is no more. For her to ever fully return would require the people to take their country back. That almost never ends well. We would fight as if it were the American Revolution, but might wind up doing the French two-step.

Middle East

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

2011 was the year we lost Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia and most of the Middle East. Between pulling out of Iraq prematurely, dancing round the fires of the Arab Spring in the Middle East and utilizing the Responsibility to Protect Doctrine, we did a wondrous job of furthering a Caliphate as well as beginning what I believe could very well be World War III. And you can thank Barack Obama, George Soros, Samantha Power and Leon Panetta for all this chaos. They just brought the world closer to their heart’s desire.

And in the settling blood and dust lay the bodies of our troops and Christians worldwide. I’m sure that Obama considers this a small price to pay to further his Grande Vision of a Marxist utopia. The blood of thousands slaughtered cries for real justice that has yet to materialize, but worldwide domination? Right on track, it’s the year of the Islamist baby.

As the election for 2012 draws nigh, look for more conflict, more intrusion… R2P will slide into Syria and ignite further the conflict with Iran. Russia and China could very well come to the aid of Iran and Syria. Unintended consequences? Nope. This was planned from the beginning – a war is the preferred tactic that Obama will use to further ensure his reelection, regardless of Progressives on either side of the aisle helping his plans along. Our boys and girls fighting for our freedom are nothing more than fodder for Obama’s soon-to-be realized dream of global government. He never intended to win any of these wars. Loss of life was to further the common good in his eyes – his ‘good.’

Obama will go down as the worst President in American history. He has wreaked more havoc and damage than any other President before and he’s not done yet. If he gets four more years, he will finish us off. And you can take that to the Shariah bank.

Sultan Knish put it better than I ever could:

But 2011 is also a reminder that the world cannot afford another year of Obama. That it cannot afford the appeasement, the destructive policies or the post-American politics that have made his regime the worst administration in this country’s history. 2011 may be the year that we lost the Middle East, but let’s work to make 2012 the year that this country loses one Barack Hussein Obama.

Religion

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

This country was founded on Christian principles. I’m sorry if some don’t like that fact, but there it is.

That hasn’t stopped Liberals from trying to erase and rewrite history. They are all for removing all traces of Christianity from schools and public places. But they insist that Islam should be given free rein. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick to death of this crap. When we had prayer in school and the pledge of allegiance, we had less violence and we had more American spirit. Now that the Progressives have mostly succeeded in taking God out of the schools and replacing Him with Marx, we have violence galore. Gangs and drugs, hate and evil walk the halls of our learning institutions. All this has gained us is the loss of our children and the embrace of evil agendas.

The White House and our Commander in Chief routinely leave out phrases referring to God, unless of course they are referring to Allah. Americans aren’t blind – they see the blatant favoritism being given Islam and how Christians are being put in their place. Christians are the majority in this country and I think most of us have just about had enough of Obama’s faux Christianity. Freedom of religion means freedom for all religions. Christians don’t blow things up, but they seem to be on Obama’s terrorist list while giving those that kill in the name of Allah a free pass, labeling their transgressions as work-related incidents. Don’t fool yourself into thinking he is trying to be fair or does not realize what he is doing… Obama knows exactly what he is doing. Read the Arabic on the wall.

Revolution

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

And so the seeds of revolutionary chaos have been sown by the Progressives in America. Look for the spring and summer of 2012 to be entirely memorable as OWS, Communists, Progressives, etc. set the streets of America on fire in service to bringing America to her knees and stirring the populist pot to engender a deluded call for Obama to end our suffering. Top down, bottom up, inside out… Van Jones will play a pivotal role to be sure.

As I have said many times before, do not fall for the siren call of Occupy Wall Street. It is a trap with no way out in the end. They will be used and then discarded once they have served their purpose. It is class warfare and a tactic that Sun Tsu would find admirable. Stay away from the protests and the riots. Revolution may come, but this is not the way to fight it. Study and remember how the American Revolution was fought. Don’t gather to be slaughtered as sheep in the pen.

Things are going to get very interesting this year unfortunately. Businesses of all flavors will be besieged in a wave of class warfare of which we’ve never seen the like. Those that even appear to have something of value will become targets of the have-nots. Check how you live and how you put forth your worth. Stock up and don’t advertise it. Prepare yourselves and your family.

Remember, as we move forward into the year, the government is not the answer, it is the problem.

As 2011 was the year of Turning Our Backs on the Gods of the Copybook Headings, 2012 may be the year of living dangerously in America. Time to loose the Constitutional badgers to rid us of the rampant rosy red rodents that so infest our chambers of leadership. Americans fight for what they believe in – the battle it seems draws near. You may trust that the Gods of the Copybooks will in the end be satisfied.
